Not bad
Red Steel was the first big disappointment with the Wii

Expecting a game with proper sword fighting
Waggle to win as the motion control's dont work right, also right handers only
It's one saving grace is the splitscreen multiplayer. Running around with an Uzi doing your best gangster impression is loads of fun. Even if you don't hit anything. There is a bug in it that makes the controllers go a bit wonky, but that just adds to the charm.

Sega Rally (on disc!) for 360. This was an early release but for good old arcade slidey racing this is great fun.

Very much so, with four of us playing it we couldn't ever do the first stage as it only lets you shoot just as they do

At least the video is clear

I also bought Mad Dog McCree on Wii yesterday, weirdly. It was free though - got it in the 3-for-2 on Wii games at Game, along with Tomb Raider Anniversary and Ghost Recon. Since MDM was the cheapest of the three, it technically cost me nothing.

I picked up Samurai Warriors 4 II as it was reduced to 9.99 new. Love a bit of Warriors action and so far I haven't played a next gen title.

Also picked up a PS TV as my local GAME had them reduced to clear for 19.99. I have no plans to stream my PS4 (as my internet sucks and, well, it's already connected to my 'big' TV!) but I wondered what it would be like to have a Vita on the big screen. Having tested it today with a few titles I'm really impressed! Diva, IA/VT and Corpse Party not only played perfectly (without any lag!) but they looked really good too! I might be able to pack the Vita away and start playing the games on the big screen now, result 8)

Dead pleased to get hold of this, the only main Final Fantasy I haven't owned or played yet:

Will go nicely with my mint GBA FF VI and Tactics Advance. And yes, that seal will be in the bin before long!

I've owned them all now at some point...sold FFIV Advance when I got the PSP 'Complete' version and also sold FF1&II: Dawn of Souls once I'd beaten it (great games but I'd not replay them again with their lack of story).
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

Megamixer: Nice! Glad you are doing the right thing and opening the game.

I bought Persona 4 Golden for the Vita. Just need the Vita to play it on now! (expected this week.)
